If you haven’t tried our bento yet, we really think you should. Now don’t give us that suspicious look. Even the nice folks over at Seattle Magazine agree. That’s why they included a little snippet about us in their “Best Seattle Restaurants 2011” article. Our bento is not only a true taste sensation, it is also a super value. We like that they paired it with a masu of sake. Sake is great, isn’t it? It kind of goes with every meal. Sake with every meal. Mmmmm…
But we digress. Mashiko diners, we appreciate you more than we can accurately express. We want you to eat what makes you happy. But as always, we strongly encourage you to try new things. Why? Because our very own Chef Hajime Sato says so, that’s why. So, how’s about a bento tonight?
If you haven’t yet, we highly recommend that you see the movie Food, Inc. It is a fantastic documentary that exposes, and offers hope for, our food supply.
Imagine our delight when TakePart.com, the official blog for Food, Inc., approached our very own Chef Hajime Sato for an interview. Check out how amazingly well Megan Bedard‘s profile piece captures the essence of Hajime.
While you’re there, you really should take a little time and check out the rest of the site. We suspect you may find an additional thing or two of interest. We particularly appreciate their food related topics. Many thanks to Megan and everyone at TakePart!
Just a short time ago, the nice folks at MSN asked Hajime if he’d like to spend an afternoon driving around in a new car, eating ice cream, and talking about sustainable sushi. We believe his answer was, “Hells yeah”. For your viewing pleasure, the resulting video can be found here. *Please note that you will have to select the “Sustainable Seattle” video by clicking on the little picture of a white bowl with waffle cones in it. Waffle cones. Mmmmm…
Check out Hajime’s fancy “Insider Profile” here.
Since you clearly have enough time to click on blog links and hang out waiting for files to buffer, you should be sure to also check out the “Strange Brew” video. It features our very good friend Angela Shen of Savor Seattle Food Tours as well as one of our favorite places to get a beer in West Seattle, Elliott Bay Brewery.
Summer 2010 was when our friend Shauna Mackinnon of Living Oceans Society introduced us to her associate, Tavi Parusel. The result was this video for their organization:Big thanks to Shauna and Tavi! You’re still cool with us even though you got our website wrong at the end of the video. 🙂
Joy of joys! Our very own Chef Hajime Sato is featured in the August 2010 issue of Seattle Met Magazine! The fancy little snippet about Hajime can be found in the Fresh Faces section. It is perfectly accompanied by our new favorite photo of Hajime, captured by Jose Manojana. Be sure to get your copy (on newsstands now). Lazier folk can just click here.
Bonus Feature: Hajime is clearly marked as “special”. We couldn’t agree with you more, Seattle Met Magazine.
Getting behind sucks, especially when you are behind on sharing something very cool.
We were delighted to meet the lovely and talented Diana of Dianasaur Dishes last autumn. Diana had made the very clever choice of having her first omakase experience at Mashiko. As if serving her was not rewarding enough, she then went on to tell the whole world about it. Additionally, Diana’s photo of a terribly serious Hajime at 1:18 is definitely one of our all-time favorites.
Hooray for Diana’s very informative and fabulously fun video! And hooray for getting caught up a bit!
We would like to thank the multi-talented Adem Tepedelen for his write-up about sustainable seafood in Seattle. Combined with his thoughtful Q&A with our very own Chef Hajime Sato, we think it is worth a read. The article is in the Spring Green Pullout Guide, which is tucked in the middle of the current issue of Seattle Weekly. Thanks, Adem!
Hey there, people who live in Seattle and like to hear about top-rated restaurants! It turns out that according to Seattle Magazine, Mashiko is one of Seattle’s Best Restaurants. We are not ashamed to admit that we had already held that belief for quite some time. It is nice, however, to hear that others feel the same. Thanks to all who support our mission to serve the tastiest, most sustainable sushi possible!
Sustainable sushi is interesting to learn about, of course. But eating it is really so much better. Luckily, you can do both today! Listen as Marnie Chesterton of Radio Netherlands Worldwide interviews our very own Chef Hajime Sato along with Casson Trenor for Earth Beat. Then get over to Mashiko tonight for dinner.
